How hard is it for doctors to get single dose vaccines? I ask this because we chose our pedi after meeting with her and she was very open to splitting vax. I delayed my daughter's Hep B to her first Dr appt and not in the hospital (although now I'm learning more and more that she didn't need it in the first place since there were no risk factors and prob will decline on future kiddos), but ather 2mo appt, I thought I would be given a choice and was planning to ok the DTaP....well turns out they no longer use DTaP alone, it's now a 5 way vax which also includes IPV and Hib. I think my jaw hit the ground when I heard her say 5 way, and on top of that was the single dose pneumococcal, and the oral rotavirus. I totally blanked an ok'd them all, then freaked out afterwards. She had a low grade fever few hrs later that went away, but since then (appt was on tues) she has been a mess. Screaming out for no apparent reason, waking 3-4x a night (she was sleeping 9hrs prior) and poor kid has the worst diarrhea from the rota :-( Luckily I'm proactive about things so I got her into her chiropractor the next day and was able to pick up some baby probiotics to mix into her night bottle (I breastfeed but pump at night so hubby can feed before bed). I've been researching non-stop about what vax I'm comf doing/continuing and I'd rather stick to the DTaP but on a much more delayed schedule and forget the others, but in reality if I ask for that particular vax is it easily available?
Also, anyone in CT use religious exemption? I want to send her to the montessori school in town, it's a catholic montessori (any religion can attend, it's not part of the curriculum) so i'm not exactly sure how an exemption will work out.
